Dossen Beach and Sieck Island

Accessible at low tide, the island is today a private property but you are allowed to walk on the coastal path. You will see among others an old derelict guard room and a sardine canning factory wich once boosted the local economy. On top of its outstanding landscapes, the island also offers a wide panorama over the whole coastline, from the isle of Batz to Cléder, which is really worth the trip.

Round tour of the island 2 km. Be careful ! Take your precautions, don't let yourself be caught by the rising tide, the island is surrounded by the sea 2 1/2 hours before and after low tide.
